This article discusses the various sources of athlete stress and the strategies that coaches can use to help young athletes cope with it. The information is based on a study with a competitive adolescent soccer team and its two coaches, and a review of the coaching and sport psychology literature. The suggested coaching strategies can help to alleviate athlete stress and may ultimately make participation in sports a more positive experience for coaches and athletes alike. (Contains 1 table.)
